th-th-th-that's all folks!



Thanks to everyone who's been following the story. Here she is, in more-or-less final form. Couldn't resist the call of green. I have to find the right place to add the mandatory touch of red. It's even got a cupholder.

Just in case anyone's searching for this in the future: quadricycle, velomobile, homebuilt, diy, recumbent. That ought to cover it. I'll try to get some videos uploaded soon.

That. Is. Awesome.

That is the coolest homebuilt, D.I.Y. velomobile recumbent quadricycle I have ever seen.

Clearly, the red goes on the rear, sort of overlapping the green bit where it pokes in to the white bit. You know, where you put your logo. You do have a logo ready, don't you?

That's simply amazing -- congratulations on getting it out the door!

I want to see close-up shots of the cupholders. And what's the story on the lights?

David said...

Yes! Congratulations, love the paint job and finish details. Does that little Chinese electric wheel work too?

Not much to see on the cupholder - just a Target special. The lights are decorative electric range bowls mounted to a silverware tray.

The electric wheel works great! I have to give it a try without it after I get a derailleur mounted. It helps a lot going up the hills, but it also weighs 40 lbs. with the battery, so it's a hindrance too.

Good idea on the logo. As a matter of fact, I do have one, devised on my drafting board when I was a wee lad drawing sports cars...

I want to see that logo. Even if it doesn't make it to the velomobile recumbent quadricycle.

I like the color! What, no streamers?

If not for a wedding, it would have been in a 4th of July parade with plenty of streamers...
